Need help adding a remote node in SMA under Tomcat



When attempting to create a new node using System Management Application (SMA), an error message appears.


Connection refused to host: examplehost; nested exception is: Connection refused: connect]


Add the following JVM arguments using variable CATALINA_OPTS
inside the file or setenv.bat in order to enable JMX on tomcat for SMA to connect remotely:

CATALINA_OPTS=" -Djava.rmi.server.hostname=<your host name>"
